Should be possible to fit the auto dimming IRVM but at a price of 7K.

Here you go guys, pictures of the manual D/N IRVM that I retrofit in my Alto K10 AMT from WagonR.

IRVM type would be the same, only difference would be the way it is mounted.

No problems in pulling up the hills, you just have to be in the right gear. I went uphill/downhill in 3rd gear, I moved to 2nd only while overtaking a slow moving vehicle ahead going uphill.

The rear end does sag if there are 3 big adults at the back seat along with a boot full of luggage, but the car never bottoms out.

Yes possible. I got it done on my zeta along with delivery, it costed me about 5.5k The regular one does come with a manual switch which you should push for night and pull for day. The auto is really better as it only dims on bright headlights and it just reverts back to normal mode under ordinary night lighting, so it results in much better exposure over all.

Jeep Compass' 2.0 Litre Diesel Engine Could be Sold To Other Carmakers
Jeep's new 2.0 litre diesel mill is all-new and will be produced at the company's Ranjangaon facility. It will not only power the new Jeep Compass, but is also expected to sourced by other car manufacturers in India.

So we could see this in a future s-cross facelift.
2 liter fiat crdi is manufactured in India and will be cheaper than importing 1.6 crdi hopefully

After a lot of thought and looking out for different options, finally booked S-Cross 1.3 Zeta in premium silver. I could not find any other vehicle around 12 lac on-road price bracket in Bangalore which seemed more value for money. Will be getting the vehicle in the first week of May as it is still in transit.

It feels great to a member of this wonderful S-Cross family. Do let me know if I should know anything about the car before the ownership begins or I any must have accessory that I should go for.

Congratulations and welcome to the S-cross family. Really wonderful car and you will enjoy the complete ownership.

The Zeta comes with most of the bells and whistles and not many accessories are needed. Still, there are no dearth of opportunities for adding accessories for an enthusiast.

Rear spoiler is one item which adds character to the rear side. (Some may not agree). Will have to drill two holes to the body to get that fixed.

A few others that can be considered depending upon the apetite.
. Auto IRVM
. Leather seats / Leather steering wheel wrapping
. Tyres / Alloys change
. Headlamps upgrade.
But, frankly if these above are being considered, Alpha would have been the ideal option.

Congratulations on booking the 1.3 Zeta!!! I have the same exact color of the 1.3 Zeta. You will not be needing any extra accessories as the car is loaded with them, but still as pointed out by Sree, if you need you can go in for spoiler and seat covers . Do see if you need to change the tyres as JK Elanzo is the stock tyre coming in with the car. I changed mine to Michelin p3st and the drive has been so smooth it is like flying on air.

Yes. So 50K in 20 months. An average of 2500 per month

13K is too much.
Which Nexa?
I have been refused auto-dimming on my Zeta by 3 Nexa dealers in Hyderabad.

Suzuki Vitara S ( 1.4 L boosterjet) to be Maruti's flagship product from NEXA a segment above S Cross! Launch expected in late 2018.

This will be expensive as it will be offered in the top-end spec only and Maruti Suzuki is not expecting great sales numbers but as an Iconic product in Nexa.

In UK, price difference between S-cross and Vitara S are very less. So if they launch Vitara S with S-cross lower engine options (1.3 DDIS or 1.5L Petrol or 1.0 boosterjet) it would literally make S-cross redundant. So they might launch it with expensive engine options only. Hope they don't discontinue S-cross and replace with Vitara S

Congrats!! The Silver Colour will neither excel nor disappoint anyone. So, neutral and safe. By the way, Which Nexa in B'lore? Zeta has got almost everything, so no essentials are required..

Not bad numbers given that the car is in the 10+ lakh bracket. BTW, while the Brezza/Ciaz etc are aplenty in Kerala, the S-Cross is tougher to come by on the roads. But on a recent road-trip to Chennai, was pleasantly surprised to spot many S-Cross on the roads in Tamilnadu - not just Chennai, but other cities too.
